AOC said it was designed by an immigrant working class woman.


It was designed by Aurora James who moved to New York from....well.... Toronto.


Note AOC earns about 170,000 basic per year now, went to Boston University and grew up in a pleasant New York neighbourhood.

Aurora James's own net worth is 1.5 million; she is going out with Benjamin Bronfman

Bronfman is worth 100 million dollars. (His Grandad was the Seagram liquor billionaire, and his Dad was long time CEO of Warner music, his net worth is 2.5 billion, and is the half-brother of the woman (Clare Bronfman) charged re NXIVM sex trafficking case.)

Honestly, it is all performance art.
Same as me being told I was absuing my "white privelege" by not kneeling for Saint George Floyd by someone who may be black, but grew up with money' Daddy got him into university with a "donation" and gave him his first job. He's fecking useless at what he does main'ly cos there's no "fear" - he can feck up, and claim racism.

Tax the rich :roll:
The rich are taxed, it's just that they go to great lengths to avoid paying it.

Its statements like that which upset Bozo...oops I meant Bono :lol:
U2 SINGER Bono says he was “stung” and “hurt” by criticism of the band moving part of its business to the Netherlands to lessen its tax burden.

Bono and Co. get a lot of stick for that but they are rank amateurs compared to the big boys, the master tax dodgers. George Soros went three years in a row without paying a single penny of income tax for eg!

Here is what the four richest men in america paid in tax from 2014 to 2018.

Must admit this is not WTF for me personally as I was wholly onboard the Hunter Biden Laptop thing being true when it was published. But do you remember the enormous amount of mainstream media censorship at the time? The New York Post - an old paper in the market - was blocked from Twitter for publishing the story. People were called all manner of wild conspiracy theorist. People who backed up the emails were made tits out of on the regular channels.
For what it's worth I think it goes way beyond the business deal emails to a really sordid story on the whole Biden set up and especially Hunter, which has been covered up. Yep, I saw all the pics supposedly from the laptops - Hunter Biden is a complete uber creep and there is something really creepy about the wider family and their attempts to play at wholesome. Uh huh. You can take that to the bank in advance of it one day being proved true ;)

John Lewis advertisement for Home Insurance :?

Executive pitch at the boardroom - Mammy and little girl sit working/painting quietly and presumably will tidy up after gender-creative boy trashes the entire place in an entitled fit of sexualised vamping. Sounds good, guys, yep, let's run with it. :roll:

Jesus wept, what is happening in the world. Who is behind pushing these messages? My working theory is that all the woke gender studies graduates that can't get proper jobs (in the Gender Factory or something, I dunno) end up in HR, Marketing, and Advertising.

In any normal reasonable world that child would be severely punished. At the very least, he'd have his iPhone confiscated and lose pronoun privileges ;)

I'm very early Gen X and I honestly think my kids are some of the last ones to learn that actions have consequences.

I would not punish the kid for the dress up, and I have to say the little fella is a brilliant actor. But its the total carnage he is causing being indulged, and in the vessel of the gender creative child as a sacred trope. Do that vamping highjinks outside kid and clean up after yourself when you are done.

Absolutely agree - my sons have all played dress up and enjoyed non gender specific toys and activities. Dammit I experimented and crossdressed back in the 80s myself - good times! But you're spot on about it having become a sacred trope :roll:

Nobody bothered about the fact that people will be claiming home insurance for damages caused by ...not a fire, flood or storm ...but their own kid?

I couldn't care less about the fact the the kid is wearing a dress and lipstick...bothers me more that his parents are going to drive up insurance costs for us all. (and that the insurance company obviously supports this practice)

Dr Rachel Levine has been publicly announced, everywhere from US Government departments, to the New York Times, as the first FEMALE four-star Admiral.
Dr Levine is a trans woman. Which is absolutely fine, so the story is that Dr Levine is the first trans woman four-star Admiral.
But Dr Levine is not a female and this blurring of the scientific reality of what is female is wrong. It is ideological gaslighting. This is not a ''first'' for ''females''.

Female is a person bearing two X chromosomes in the cell nuclei and of or denoting the sex that can bear offspring or produce eggs, distinguished biologically by the production of gametes (ova) which can be fertilized by male gametes.

Humans can change gender expression and identity but humans cannot change sex.

This is being called racist now. Image

Something about cultural appropriation and being culturally insensitive.

Surely these geordies are trying to pay homage to their new owners, they haven't been this happy in decades.

I heard comedian Dave Chapelle has caused some stink at Netflix, because he made a joke that was offensive to the trans community. Went looking for details and found this:
The streaming giant has found itself embroiled in an intense and highly public controversy over Chappelle's The Closer, in which the stand-up star insists "gender is a fact" and accuses LGBTQ people of being "too sensitive".
Presumably the LGBTQ people who have taken offense disagree with this, rather neatly proving his point that they are in fact too sensitive.

Thankfully the co CEO Has some level of perspective :
Sarandos wrote to staff in a leaked internal memo last week that "content on screen doesn't directly translate to real-world harm", and emphasised the importance of defending "artistic freedom".
But as the cries louder he realized:
"I should have first and foremost acknowledged in those emails that a group of our employees were in pain, and they were really feeling hurt from a business decision that we made,"
Once again rather proving Chapelles point.



WTF??!!

That’s irritating. I see that sitter has removed the video, though I suspect its nothing to demand with copyright. it’s more to do with the fact that it shows a very hostile, intolerant and aggressive LGBTQ crowd bullying somebody with a different viewpoint.

Basically this guys turns up with “I like Dave Chappelle” sign, hand drawn and taped to a stick. They try to grab it off him, and then stamp on the end of it, breaking the sign off, leaving him just the stick.

He’s then left just holding a stick, and They then start crying “he’s got a weapon!” They use this as justification to push him back away from the crowd, and having retreated he calmly gives up the stick, bemused, and just quietly keeps say “I just like Dave Chapelle”.

The continue to surround him, raised arms, aggressive, and get right in his face, but to his credit he stays calm and just keeps repeating that he’s a fan of Dave Chappelle.

It is particularly annoying that the video has been deleted, because this is how it is being reported:

All this politically correctness has popped up over the last few years, and at my age is damn tricky to keep up with, as it was nowhere to be seen when I was growing up. I do my damdest to treat people with dignity and respect. But if I sometimes miss the mark on this pc stuff, please forgive me, its unintentional , and its just me being a pc illiterate old dude thats not up to date on this stuff.

And if that dont explain it, then you can just pucker up....

You need not apologise to me anyway as I don't have a politically correct bone in my body and never will. I am so intolerant that at the slightest hint of pc/woke attitudes or Americanisms/DART speak etc and I dismiss the person as an idiot and move on. No need to 'reach out' to me. Look, I can use smilies too - how hip am I. :mrgreen:
